Academics . Biomedical Art . Overview

Biomedical Art

The Biomedical Art program at the Cleveland Institute of Art is one of only a few BFA degrees of its kind in the United States, combining applied art, science, and technology to create visual education materials on scientific and medical topics. Based on the traditional field of scientific and medical illustration, our curriculum incorporates leading-edge digital media techniques, interactivity, and animation. We teach our Biomedical Art majors how to blend artistic talent with knowledge of natural science, a biomedical intellect, and strong visual communication skills.

You will learn about illustration, information design, 3D modeling, and animation through conventional and digital methods. With a flexible course of study, you can take courses in:

  • Computer imaging and animation
  • Editorial illustration
  • Instructional design and multimedia
  • Medical sculpture
  • Surgical and natural science
  • Business and professional practices.

Our dedicated, highly-trained faculty is one of our greatest assets. Each Biomedical Art instructor at the Cleveland Institute of Art is accredited by the Association of Medical Illustrators as a Certified Medical Illustrator. Besides their expertise, our faculty have established great relationships with the region’s extraordinary medical, scientific, and cultural communities. Our professional partnerships with Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, and the Cleveland Clinic as well as the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Cleveland Botanical Garden will provide you with amazing exhibition opportunities and medical illustration projects.
